“Sons of Anarchy” actor David Labrava on Wednesday said he was “broken” after announcing that his 16-year-old son committed suicide after years of “quietly suffering” from depression.
“I am broken,” the 55-year-old actor said.
Tycho Spelis Chiusano took his own life on Saturday, the announcement read.
“Never in a million tears would I think I would be posting this,” Labrava wrote on Instagram. “This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old. He suffered from a depression we couldn’t see because he was a happy young kid.”
Never in a million tears would I think I would be posting this. This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old. He suffered from a depression we couldnt see because he was a happy young kid. Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them🙏 I am broken 😭 #gofundme.com/flyhighTYCHO
The actor set up a GoFundMe page in honor of his son, with all proceeds going to organizations that deal with bipolar disorder and depression. This was his son’s last wish.
The actor also wrote his son had “an amazing and beautiful soul” and was “full of life” before issuing a reminder to “always be kind” and “to learn to communicate with each other.”
